I feel we should compile a list of combinations of IE8/80 paired with DAPs and/or AMPs having great synergy...
I will share my experience with IE8 pairings:
The best pairing for my IE8 I've found till date is with my iphone 4.
The IE8 does not sound good with Galaxy S3 and definitely not with DX50 (lot of noise and hissing).
I am particularly interested in hearing about IE8 paired with RSA amps, like RSA Shadow, Mustang, and the Pico Slim....Anyone??
